Links: Valentine's Day Craft Projects!

I had a lot of fun doing that Christmas link round up, so I thought I'd do another for Valentine's Day crafts. (we did make the tree topper, lots of snowflakes, and printed out the very cute bird ornaments by Lisa Rupp, by the way. Saving the tree skirt for next year!)

I'm tempted by both the paper and the felt versions of these cute hearts on the Craft Blog. I'd use some of that recycled plastic felt I've seen around, available at felt-o-ramavia Craft Magazine Blog

Jermina Juan of PaperPlateandPlane provides this simple paper rose tutorial out of Dollar Store Doilies. Via Craft Gossip. Really simple, but it looks great!

 
I'd need to dig up my hot glue gun to make this lovely lace brooch from Martha Stewart. That is if I still have one, I may have abandoned it in one of our moves. Another project from Martha Stewart that I might be more likely to make, knit catnip hearts for Lucy!

And I've seen several cute potholder tutorials, including one from Martha Stewart, another which I like because it uses thrifted and Ikea potholders and makes them cuter using bias tape, from Made.  However I think I like the one pictured above from a spoon full of sugar, because of the cute heart fabric and heart stitching. Those last two were both found via Craft Gossip again.

And lastly, if you know a knitter, this giant heart shaped box of yarn would be one of the best valentine's day presents ever. via Craftzine Blog.

Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which
blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

Howdy excellent blog! Does running a blog such as this
require a massive amount work? I have virtually no knowledge of coding but I had been hoping to start
my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any suggestions
or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I simply
wanted to ask. Thank you!

Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one?

Thanks a lot!

Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out.
Please let me know where you got your design.
Thank you

At this time it seems like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.

(from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

Heya! My name is Dominick and I just wanted
to say your weblog is awesome! It really is amusing due to
the fact I use to have a blog website that nearly had an identical website url:
http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=1223713373574290422&postID=8906718377274009563
mine was only a few letters different. In any case, I'm a big supporter of your blogging site and if you ever would like a guest article please make sure to email me at: dominick-cottrell@yahoo.com. I absolutely love writing!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of
your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of
content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than
just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
But think of if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more,
"pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips,
this website could certainly be one of the most beneficial in
its field. Amazing blog!

Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses?
If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you
can recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.

Hey! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I
had to ask. Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a
large amount of work? I am brand new to operating a blog however I
do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
